Feeling Pregnant

I am just about 6 weeks along with my second. I am not "feeling" pregnant at all. My pants are getting a little tighter, but that's it. With my first, I "felt" pregnant right away and had many symptoms. Not so much with this pregnancy, it that normal? When did you start to feel pregnant with your second or later babies?

I haven't really felt pregnant at all. I am finally starting to feel pregnant only because my little boy kicks me all the time! Sometimes I even forget and I am 28 weeks! I think it just depends on how your body reacts. I have heard that it can be different with every single baby.

I think maybe second and more times around your body is a bit more use to the changes . With my first I felt all out of wack from the begining . Every little change was so new to me that I noticed it right off .

I am on #6 baby , #7 pregnancy and with this pregnancy I had a miscarriage 3 months to the day of finding out we were expecting again . With the non-viable pregnancy I lost track of my cycle from being out of town on business too much, but the symptoms and feeling hit much harder and much quicker than the other pregnancies .

This time I worried that my not having any symptoms was a bad sign. Morning sickness didn't kick in until my second trimester . Boy should I have not complained that I didn't get it from the start cause once I hit that 2nd trimester mile stone , all my worries of not feeling pregnant were a thing of the past as was no morning sickness .

im only on my first but i didnt find out i was pregnant till i was 9 wks n wouldnt have ever known that soon if my friend didnt tell me to do a test. i never felt that connected to begin with because i didnt get morning sickness or the usual stuff that everyone else got but i do now. i still dont feel that pregnant except for when i get heart burn, feel him moving and look down n im 28 wks now. alot of people i know at the moment are pregnant too and they have every pregnancy symptom under the sun. im no expert but i really just think its just that every baby is different and so your body is going to feel different everytime.
